In This Blog: Claudia Does a Dumb and Walks a Mile in -31 Degree Weather


I know that doesn’t sound like a very long distance, but OHMYGOD.

REALLY
FREAKING
COLD

It was really only like -8 or something (hahaha, “only” -8), but we were getting like 15 mph wind gusts—so with wind chill it was -31—and I had to walk directly into them to get home from the bus. It also didn’t help that there was snow blowing EVERYWHERE so it only took about 30 seconds for my glasses to get coated in flurry debris. Plus, it had snowed so much that it was hard to tell where the road was versus where the sidewalk was, so I was kind of stumbling around anyway, never mind that my eyelashes were freezing together and I couldn’t feel my toes after the first block.

Seriously, I have a new respect for cold now. I would not want to go back out in that.

(Except I kinda do.)
(It was exciting.)

In related news, this is going to be the first week I won’t make my mileage goal, mainly because the weather is not walker-friendly tonight and because it probably won’t be walker-friendly tomorrow. I’ll make up the lost miles after finals.
